Sure, you could recharge your Nissan Leaf the earth-friendly way (feeding it electricity from a coal-burning power plant), but what fun is that? There's a better way: holding down the brakes lightly while being towed. Because of the regenerative braking feature of the Leaf design, this will charge the car's batteries. Just make sure that your tow truck gets no more than 15 miles per gallon.
You can watch a video of this technique at the link. It's in Dutch, but English subtitles are available by clicking on the Closed Caption button. There's also a little bit of profane language.Link
